  2. It's frustrating my mother never smoked, drank, taken drugs. Always had a healthy diet and active lifestyle yet still she is burdened with such a life-changing condition. She can't see the faces of her grandchildren etc. Life can be very cruel.

  3. smoking yes of course we all know that smoking is stupid, but how about all the Co2 in our environment? that is something that I think needs to be looked at. Doctors and scientists really need to examine the effects that breathing these fumes in can do.

  4. Despite receiving regular injection at the VA in San Francisco I fear losing my central vision and only have wet in one eye at this point. This lecture was very informative. I'm baffled, however, that the VA in San Francisco uses injections that cost $2,000 each whereas I read in an article from the Chicago Times that a doctor there questions why everyone wouldn't be using one of the three which only costs $50 per treatment. Perhaps I will attempt to reach this doctor to answer that question, but this was very informative. Thank you!

  5. I'm improving my eyesight with all dark leafy green like Kale Spinach etc. I'm studying the Bates method a Dr who helped thousands get rid of glasses and get perfect eye sight. I never trust these eye doctors who don't mention the foods you should eat and never say Do the Bates method.

  6. I have wet macD and have had fibromyalgia since 2001, which can cause inflammations anywhere on the body and brain. On Feb 10, 2001 I developed a pseudo tumor which a ct scan found around my optic nerve and it is a reoccurring several times a year since then sometimes on the left sometimes the right and sometimes both eyes affected as well as severe swelling on the affected side of my face. I wonder if that is why I have amd now? I am 75 yrs young and 5'2" at 123 lbs.

  7. Best treatment is eating all your dark leafy greens and carrot juice all organic. Also bilberry really helps plus change your diet to vegetables and fruits. Feed your eyes with the best foods. Doctors don't tell you what foods to take. My right eye improves when I eat alot of blueberries or bilberry.

  8. because our generation is living longer …. BULL…. in the centuries even small kids had eye problem and eye infection of different TYPE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD….. MOST IN FAR EAST ASIA AND MIDDLE EAST AND ALL OVER IN EUROPE BACK ABOUT 200 years….

  9. Every case is different, but with my mother's case, both wet and dry, diagnosed over ten years ago, a heavy supplementation regimen has held the Avstastin syringe / needle at bay for over three years. I do not believe my mother has had more than a half-dozen shots in each eye prior to her current long-term stability. While we both take over two dozen supplements a day and I like to focus on life extension, my mother's eye supplementation regimen contains several key ingredients. Resveratrol with Quercetin, Zinc, Mixed Carotenoids, Rice Bran Extract Powder, Natural Mixed Tochopherols Vitamin E with high Gamma E, Eye Factors Formula (Lutein, Bilberry etc.), Vitamin C, Mixed Oils Supplement (Borage Seed, Flax Seed, Deep Sea Fish Oil), Twin Labs One A Day Iron Free Multi Vitamin, Grass Fed Whey Protein, non-GMO foods and many organic foods including organic beef, turkey, chicken, butter and milk. Again, each individual is different, but an excellent diet and supplementation program can provide great benefits.

  10. Eye injection to treat wet-form AMD seems out of date already.

    God's mercy nano-grade eye drops should be the last-ditch treatment
    for wet-form AMD.

    All glory belongs to God !

  11. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT A TIC TAC TOE CHART IF YOU SEE WAVEY LINES YOU HAVE A PROBLEM LIKE ME MINE IS WET. IM GOING WENSDAY. THIS SUCKS DONT WAIT. COVER ONE EYE AND LOOK AT THE CHART THE LINES SHOULD BE STRAIT.

  12. Will there be an eye drops for Macular Degenerations in the future? for both formal wet/dry macular degeneration? has they been any new treatments approve from the FDA? What new medication will be available for both Wet AMD, Dry AMD? Jocelyn Gallant
